    Hi.

    Long story short, I have a qualification that is equivalent to Foundation Degree. I am planning on applying to Uni for next year and wanted to know if I will be eligible for funding? I have a Level 4 AAT, or some people refer to as AAT qualified.

    Please could someone advise me on this matter? I don't know if I should go through with my Uni applications and then find out halfway through that I am not eligible for funding

    Best regards!

    Hi newgirlintow,

    Can I ask are you doing a one year top up course, to top up your foundation degree to a full degree or entering the final year of a course ?


    Thanks Rona

    Hi newgirlintown,

    Student Finance do not support professional qualifications, but because you have stated that it is equivalent of a foundation degree, I have asked for clarification from our assessment team.

    I will update you once I receive a response.

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Mary,

    I checked with Rona to see if she's had a response yet.

    Your AAT qualification will not affect your eligibilty. As it is a professional qualification it doesn't count as previous study.

    Regards,

    Stuart
